Important Tax Information
Under the Tax Reform Act of 1996 any funds received by students from scholarships, benefits, fellowships and grants from LDS Business College or any other source, which combined exceed the cost of tuition, fees, books, and required equipment and supplies, are considered taxable income. Taxable income may include grants and scholarships but not federal loans (see IRS publication 520).
Since students are required to report to the Internal Revenue Service scholarship and grant income above the cost of tuition and books, it is vital for students to keep detailed records (including cancelled checks and/or receipts) of all expenditures for tuition, fees, books, and required equipments and supplies.
Due to the new federal Hope Scholarship, which is a federal tax credit, the institution is required to report certain tuition, scholarship, grant and other information to students and to the IRS on form 1098T. Questions regarding the Hope Scholarship and the Lifetime Learning Credit can be obtained from the Accounting Office.
